Online PR News – 07-October-2016 – Cambridge – Cambridge, MA, October 06, 2016 -- Exosome Diagnostics, Inc. has entered into an agreement with Amgen to evaluate the potential to advance drug development with Exosomeâ€™s proprietary liquid biopsy diagnostics technology and platform. Under the terms of the agreement, the companies will collaborate to identify a potential liquid biopsy diagnostic. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
Liquid biopsies are effective in advancing therapeutics because of their distinct advantage over tissue biopsies. A significant advantage is that they are less invasive, resulting in fewer complications and risks to the patient during sample collection. Liquid biopsies enable easier sample collection and may help facilitate patient enrollment into trials.
â€śWe are excited to initiate this agreement with Amgen on developing technology that may advance the use of liquid biopsy tests in clinical development,â€ť stated Mario Morken, Head of Business Development for Exosome Diagnostics. â€śExosome Diagnosticâ€™s technology and expertise allows for the development of highly sensitive liquid biopsy assays.â€ť
â€śThe strategy and positioning of the company since the beginning of 2016 is garnering significant results, and we look forward to expounding upon these successes,â€ť stated John Boyce, President and CEO of Exosome Diagnostics.
